Quality, certification and use
In addition to the provision of sustainable fuels, their use also has a major impact on their sustainability. Technological improvements can significantly reduce the fuel consumption of modern aircraft engines. In particular, the climate effects of aviation that are not caused by greenhouse gases vary greatly from region to region and over time. These effects are also influenced by fuel properties. Therefore, aireg studies the concrete use, quality and certification of alternative fuels.
In particular, the need for sustainable aviation fuels to meet climate targets is discussed, as are the implications for the non-CO2 related climate impact of aviation The certification of new aviation fuel types also plays a major role: in cooperation with international organizations, aireg is developing ways to accelerate the certification of new fuels. In addition, the effects of blends of fossil and sustainable aviation fuels are discussed. For this purpose, aireg has accompanied the DEMO-SPK project.
